I'm on the approach to when morning sickness kicks in, and if it's anything like last time, I'm in for a rough time. So! What did you find helped your morning sickness?
For me I found ginger nuts and irn bru were great, but i don't fancy living off the stuff for an extended period of time.
What helped you?

Ginger biscuits helped a little but I still suffer morning and night sickness now at 18 weeks!

Sparkling water, ice lollys and celery helped... A bit. Like furmummy, I still suffer now. First thing in the morning and last thing at night. I wish I had a miracle cure. It was an experience.

I'm with you on the sparkling water (chilled!) and ice lollies casgup. Salt and vinegar crisps also helped settle any nausea throughout the day.
I find that with actual morning sickness, it's easier just to let it happen rather than fight it x

Can barely think of these things without feeling sick now that morning sickness has passed; lilt, ice lollies, brown bread & honey, & sweet n salty popcorn

Eating little and often, generally salty things like crisps or crackers. The worst thing for me was allowing my stomach to be empty!

The only things that helped me. With M - acupuncture and this time, being put on the drip to rehydrate me. If only all the old wives tales had worked on me. I knew it was ms time this pregnancy though when all I could eat was smash with some gravy!

I eat a pack of salt and vinegar crisps every morning for breakfast! I've never been a savoury person but can't get enough of crisps atm!

Carbs! I wasn't ever sick, just felt sick, and carbs helped! x

Eat before you get up. I have a stash on breadsticks in my knicker drawer ;) for me, I just need to not let myself get too hungry and to clear up as soon as we've eaten. Any kind of food smell makes me barf, especially cooked veg. I'm living on ready salted crisps and lemonade at the moment.

Thanks ladies, I don't really want to miss too much work if i can help it. I've bought travel sickness bands to help too as they were a lifesaver when i was travelling to work the last time.

Big Macs I have no idea how that worked but it did. As did tuc crackers lol x

Hmmm so a salty carb fest with a bottle of ginger to wash it down with? Sounds good to me! :-)

I forgot about those travel sickness bands, I used them loads with S and they really helped really helped. I'm off to dig them out now!

I've lost one of mine, that's why i had to buy new ones, but i'm pretty sure they're exactly the same.

Rarely sick (although worse second time round than first) here but had awful all day nausea eating little and often so not overfull but never to hungry. Also another that found carbs most manageable plain baked potatoes were good, crisps (plain or cheese and onion) bread was bad as gave me acid indigestion. I had a box of cream crackers/ rich tea by the bed and would eat one or two before getting up or if I woke in the middle of the night feeling awful and that helped to.

Ice lollies, ice cold water, fruit, cereal, toast & chips. Eating little & often, plenty of sleep & tons of paracetamol for the headaches.
It Was horrendous. I soon learned that I needed to eat whereas at the beginning I felt too sick to eat.

I found it was the folic acid making my morning sickness worse so taking it at night rather than in the morning seemed to help .. also ginger biscuits & bananas worked.
